For the hippies at heart.
Yup, crochet is just so hot right now! Bet you never thought this 70s trend would make a comeback, but it has… and this time round it’s hitting the beach. The crochet bikini is probably the item of the season.
Forget what you know about the old-school style (those dated tassels and doily patterns) – the style is getting a modern makeover thanks to stretchy high-tech fabrics, new cuts and exciting colour options. What’s better, you can take these easy-breezy bikini styles straight from the beach to bar without breaking a sweat. All you need to do is throw on a cover-up or a pair of high-waisted shorts!
